According to the leading authority on everything, Wikipedia, Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and reflect upon our spiritual and material possessions.  Hopefully, upon reflection we are strengthened spiritually even though we have been materially weakened this past year.  We must continue to reach out to those less fortunate, if not with our money, then with our time.  And because so many have recently lost so much material wealth, the holiday this year will have a deeper meaning for many more people.  I wish everyone a day focused not on what was lost; but with deep gratitude for what we have, the great country we share and the opportunities ahead.
